The weekend at the beginning of October was particularly rainy and grey, but the Lambeth Open provided much merriment around Brixton. LPT provided a range of interesting demonstrations within the workshop over the two days, chatting to hundreds of locals and a curious few.
The gallery and design room also showcased some of the most recent and interesting work being produced within the workshop. It was a great opportunity to show the skills of not only our workshop members but also the staff.
Over the two days LPT technicians screen printed fabric lengths of three-colour repeat print commissioned by The Foundling Museum for the Threads of Feeling exhibition. The public took little swatches away with them as a keepsake from the day, including the exhibition’s curator John Styles who popped in for a peek.
LPT’s Surface Bursary resident, Berit Greinke held a workshop alongside the Florella printing on the Saturday. Showing the more experiemental techniques of printing and the wonders of felt tip pens produced as part of her Chrome (live) project developed during the residency. This included the installation box shown, created to work with a computer programme to read the colour and convert the readings into sound.
Visitors also had the chance on Sunday to print their own LPT canvas bag, or just to help themselves to one printed by one of our interns.
LPT would like to thank all the visitors for making the weekend diverse, exciting and very rewarding!
